The Conklin Pen Company® was established in 1898 in Toledo, Ohio during the golden era of fountain pens, and is still regarded as one of the most prominent pen manufacturers today. The Conklin Pen Company of Toledo, Ohio, USA built and earned a reputation of high quality and careful workmanship that made one proud to own a genuine Conklin pen. Unfortunately, the Conklin Pen Company ceased production in 1955. The brand was brought back to life when the company was purchased in 2000 by Yafa Pen Company. Yafa pen Company is the official owner and world-wide distributor of the Conklin brand since 2009. Yafa is proud to utilize its 44 years of experience to restore the quality and dedication of the original Conklin Pen Company to produce fine pens that are treasured for generations.
To pay homage to the origins of the Conklin brand, and exceptional craftsmanship and innovation that went into producing fine writing instruments, Conklin is introducing the Toledo Collection. Featuring an elegant look inspired by the original Conklin designs, Toledo collection shows off a gorgeous, glossy black body made of high-quality European grade resin that is smooth and pleasant to touch. Each writing instrument is decorated with colorful resin ring segments on both cap and barrel. Toledo collection offers three different color combinations of ring segments: Burgundy and white, Orange and white, Blue and white. Every Toledo cap designed as a trendy flat-top, adapted by Conklin in 1924, that gives each pen a classy, stylish look. Each writing instrument is complimented by a chrome trim that enhances the overall look, and highlights unique details and elements of every pen.
Toledo is available in fountain pens and ballpoint pens. The ballpoint pen activates with a twist mechanism and accepts standard Parker® style ballpoint or gel refills. The fountain pen fills via cartridge or converter (included) and is equipped with a premium JoWo stainless steel #6 nib personalized with the Conklin name, the historic “Toledo, USA” mark, and a crescent-shaped breathing hole. The nib is available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Stub, or Omniflex points.
Each Conklin pen features a lifetime warranty and is sold in a luxurious gift box.
